Bunn targets result against Rotherham on Tuesday

- Bunn previews Tuesday vs Rotherham

Harry Bunn says his stunning late against Bristol City on Saturday was insignificant compared to the result; a 2-1 defeat for the Terriers.

Bunn emerged from the bench to score a stunning long range strike against the Robins on his 50th league appearance for the Club, but in the end it was nothing more than a consolation as Town spurned chances and couldn’t complete the comeback.

“Obviously the three points would have been better. I’m delighted with the goal, but disappointed that we couldn’t get the win,” Harry told

“We knew they were strong on set pieces and they proved that in the game. Unfortunately we didn’t do ourselves justice when defending them and that’s something for us to work on. Hopefully that won’t happen again.

“We eventually grew into the game, but every match is different and perhaps the way they setup changed the way that we played. 

“I thought we created a lot of chances in the second half; we adapted well and were the better team. On another day we might have come away with a point, maybe three, but we have to learn to stick the chances away. Goals win games so the sooner we do that, the sooner we will win more games.”

Bunn and his teammates soon have the chance to put the defeat behind them, with Rotherham United the next side to visit the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night. 

Harry continued: “Fortunately for us, we have a big game on Tuesday. That’s a good chance for us to put things right. The lads are quite eager to get back on the pitch and I don’t think we could have picked a better game than Rotherham. 

“Last season we had two good games against them, although unfortunately we didn’t win either. That’s another thing for us to put right.” 

Town’s players are now four games into David Wagner’s tenure as Head Coach and Harry says the emphasis is on them to deliver what the German wants:

“Every Manager or Head Coach has a different style of play and the lads are still adapting to this. It’s our job to adapt to what the Head Coach wants and hopefully we can do that sooner rather than later. 

“It is intense and that has helped us; in the last few games, we’ve looked the fitter team. I do believe we are now one of the fittest sides in the league; on the running stats, we usually do quite well.

“I think people can see the results will certainly start to come.” 

“I’ve enjoyed it in the two years that I’ve been here and I feel like I’m always improving. Hopefully I can carry on and help the team win more games to jump up the league.”

Watch Town for just £10 at the gate on Tuesday night!
